The necklace fastens with a hook and eye and is adjustable in length, using a long and short link chain which terminates in a ball charm. The necklace is signed - the inside of the hook is stamped with 'TRIFARI' with a crown symbol above the 'T' and a copyright symbol. The necklace is 32cm at its shortest length and 39cm at its longest length. 

    A Short History...

    Glamorous and affordable rhinestone jewellery was still prevalent in the 1950s, even though the post-war necessity for it had obviously waned. Featuring stones in outlandish sizes and showy colour ways, this form of jewellery was referred to as 'cocktail' because it was commonly worn to a way of gathering together that was becoming increasingly popular - the cocktail party.  

    Wear it With...

    All that Glitters

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
